Introducing:MoDyves Jewelry + Don't Foget the lyrics audition + AMAS + CNN 2008 Heroes


British African designer Esther Agbarha has travelled extensively around the world to places such as London, New York, Paris, Thailand, Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong, China, and Dubai just to name a few. This has strongly influenced her creativity and inspired her choices. She currently resides in Europe with her two children.
Esther has a Bachelor of Science from London Guildhall University and a Masters degree from Pennsylvania State university.





She worked in the corporate sector for financial institutions in both London and United States of America.
In 2006, MoDyves was established from Esther’s passion for the finer things in life. She designs jewelry that merges ancient wisdom with today’s needs. The focus of the designs are based on the “gift of nature” and the euphoria for wellness.



MoDyves jewelry creation is composed of two-faced gemstone pendants and necklaces with healing properties lavished in white, yellow, and pink 18K gold . These are one-of-a-kind piece that can be worn as two different styles due to the unique setting of the two-faced stones that touch the skin. A portion of the proceeds from MoDyves Collection will go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.


Currently the only place its being sold is on-line at http://www.modyves.com/

2. Yohannes Gebregeorgis, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: Moved by the lack of children's books and literacy in his native Ethiopia, Gebregeorgis established Ethiopia Reads, bringing free public libraries and literacy programs to thousands of Ethiopian children.

3. Carolyn LeCroy, Norfolk, Virginia: After serving time in prison, LeCroy started the Messages Project to help children stay connected with their incarcerated parents. She and volunteer camera crews have taped roughly 3,000 messages from inmates to their children.

4. Anne Mahlum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: On her daily morning jogs, Mahlum used to run past homeless men. Today, she's helping to transform lives by running with them, and others as part of her Back On My Feet program.

5. Liz McCartney, St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana: McCartney moved to New Orleans to dedicate herself to helping Hurricane Katrina survivors move back into their homes. Her nonprofit, St. Bernard Project, has rebuilt the homes of more than 120 families for free.

6. Phymean Noun, Toronto, Ontario: Growing up in Cambodia, Noun struggled to complete high school. Today, she offers hundreds of Cambodian children who work in Phnom Penh's trash dump a way out through free schooling and job training.

7. David Puckett, Savannah, Georgia: Puckett started PIPO Missions to bring ongoing prosthetic and orthotic care to those in need. Since November 2000, he has helped more than 420 people in southeastern Mexico, free of charge.

8. Maria Ruiz, El Paso, Texas: Several times a week, Ruiz crosses the border into Juarez, Mexico, bringing food, clothing and toys to hundreds of impoverished children and their families.

9. Marie Da Silva, Los Angeles, California: Having lost 14 family members to AIDS, the nanny funds a school in her native Malawi, where half a million children have been orphaned by the disease.

10. Viola Vaughn, Kaolack, Senegal: The Detroit, Michigan, native moved to Senegal to retire. Instead, a group of failing schoolchildren asked her to help them pass their classes. Today, her 10,000 Girls program is helping hundreds of girls succeed in school and run their own businesses.

God bless all those making a difference in our world...
God bless everyone
